Rice is in Stock: do not panic

11/04/2008 15:37

The Consumer Council of Fiji is advicing consumers not to panic regarding rice shortage. A review of rice supply by the Council shows there is enough rice in the supermarkets around Fiji except in the MH stores.

The consumers should not overstock because of the hype being created in the market place. Consumers will be at a loss if they overstock because our imported rice gets contaminated by the weevils and that can result in wastage.

The price of 10kg FMF long grain sunrise is sold between $10.99 to $13.84 whereas 10kg FMF Calrose rice is sold between $14.85 to $15.99. In Labasa 10kg Rewa Rice is sold between $14.79 to $16.12.

From the table it can be concluded that there is enough supply for the domestic demand.
